Politicians want power, children need electricity for their future

Untimely power cuts in Bengaluru is causing a lot of distress to school children who have their exams.

All our politicians in the state are now busy mustering POWER to rule us, with promises. On the contrary, there is untimely load shedding ( especially in the evenings between 6 PM to 11 PM and early mornings 5 AM to 7 AM).

This has caused problems to exam going children. They have to revise the syllabus of the entire year. Although, the government provides mid-day meals,free books and other facilities, the students cannot revise in the last few hours before the exam. What would be the impact on the psychology of the children?

We hope our government and energy department would look into this matter and see that there is NO LOAD SHEDDING IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS DURING LATE EVENINGS AND EARLY MORNINGS TILL THE EXAMINATIONS ARE OVER.

On the other hand, speeding vehicles create obstacles for something as simple as crossing the road.  "Though Mumbai appeared to…

Marooned and abandoned: Study reveals displaced families were put in the path of floods

Perumbakkam in Chennai has faced floods in 2015, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2023. Despite that, 12,045 families were resettled there since 2015.

When Cyclone Michaung-induced floods hit the resettlement colonies of Perumbakkam, the houses on the ground floor were quickly inundated. On a priority basis, persons with disabilities were allocated houses on the ground floor. However, with the floods, their vulnerability pushed them further to the fringes. They were forced to climb stairs seeking refuge in other people's homes that already had leaky roofs and damp walls. This was not the first time people in resettlement colonies in Perumbakkam or Semmencherry were facing floods. Almost every year, November and December are months of struggle for the families, who are evicted and resettled…
